Nathan Ellis, who delivered the dramatic last over of this year's Vitality Blast final, has been signed by London Spirit for the second edition of The Hundred.

The Australian seamer, who held his nerve during a nail-biting conclusion to seal the T20 title for Hampshire, replaces injured compatriot Riley Meredith in the Brave squad ahead of next week's launch.

Worcestershire's Pat Brown, who made four T20 appearances for England in 2019, has also been drafted as injury replacement by Oval Invincibles, who have lost Gus Atkinson.

The Invincibles' women's side have also been forced into one change, with Sophia Smale joining in place of Emma Jones.

Three overseas signings have also been announced to cover for international absences, with Tabraiz Shamsi deputising for Rashid Khan at Trent Rockets, Australian Josh Inglis for compatriot Glenn Maxwell at Spirit and Ireland's Paul Stirling standing in for Aussie Marcus Stoinis at Southern Brave.

Stirling was named player of the match in last year's inaugural final, leading Brave to the trophy with a knock of 61, but had not been retained.
